Have any of you heard of Montien Hotel Surawong Bangkok? The truth is, I hadn’t heard of this name before this trip as I don’t usually review old hotels. That said, I will have to also admit that the renovated, revamped and revived Montien Hotel Surawong has become my favourite hotel for 2022.
It might not be the most luxurious hotel in Bangkok, but if I’m looking at it objectively in terms of the rooms, Thai hospitality, location and food options, Montien Surawong ticks all boxes and scores a distinction.
Revival of The Original
Montien Surawong is a heritage hotel with lots of stories to tell. To survive in this competitive market, a major renovation was done to target the millennials and Generation Z. Their “Revival of The Original” programme has sustainably upgraded most of the hotel’s operations and facilities. Montien Surawong is now a lifestyle hotel that captures the true essence of Thai hospitality.
The building of Montien Hotel Surawong Bangkok involved leading architects and master artists of that era. The design aspirations of the renowned royal architect are still reflected in the uniquely “Thai” aesthetic of the building, which has always won plaudits from guests and Thai art connoisseurs. The facade of Montien Surawong might not be fancy, but the entrance sure looks fabulous with those light bulbs on the ceiling.
Staff at Montien are ever-ready to welcome and assist you with your heavy luggage as you proceed to have your check-in procedures done.
